Need Help Buying Video Card
Okay, first i guess ill tell you some of my computer information.
I have a Compaq Preserio Sr1803WM(i know)
Intel Celeron 3.20GHz
1.5 GB Ram (just upgraded from 512)
ATI Radeon Xpress 200 Series motherboard with integrated video.
oh,and i have an old monitor
Im looking to buy a video card. i can spend around 500 saving up, but no more than 600. If i can get what i need for less, awsome. As far as what i need, well, im a gamer. im ending up playing some high end games like Oblivion and others that require some hefty graphics.
My question is what should i get? iv heard endless dibeates between Geforce and ATI Radeon. Iv been leaning to a Geforce, though i need to know what my computer can handle. No point in getting a 500$ video card if im only getting 200$ out of it.
I didnt think about power. I think i have 300WATT. i dont know how to check what a video card needs
P.S. ill have the money in two too four weeks.
